Falling Water Gardens at the Krohn

The Krohn Conservatory’s early spring floral show takes design inspiration from architect Frank Lloyd Wright (his 1935 modernist Pennsylvania home built for the Kaufmann family is called “Fallingwater”). The show features a Mission-style flowerbed that looks like a stained glass window made of hundreds of pansies, tulips and hydrangeas, as well as real stained glass windows created by local artist David Duff of Classical Glass. For additional flora, Norway spruce, atlas blue cedar and pussy willows frame flowerbeds flowing with small streams to exemplify design rooted in nature.
